Display Images with User Submitted Posts

Here is a quick recipe for displaying linked images for images submitted with the User Submitted Posts plugin.

To display all submitted images wrapped with links (think lightbox support), add this snippet to the WordPress Loop:

<?php // USP display linked images
$args = array('order' => 'ASC','post_type'=>'attachment','post_parent'=>$post->ID,'post_mime_type'=>'image','post_status'=>null,'numberposts'=>-1,); 
$attachments = get_posts($args);
if ($attachments) {
	foreach ($attachments as $attachment) {
		echo '<a rel="lightbox" href="'.wp_get_attachment_url($attachment->ID).'" title="'.get_the_title().'">'.wp_get_attachment_image($attachment->ID,'medium',false).'</a>';							
} ?>

Customize as needed to suit your implementation. Also check out the Pro version of User Submitted Posts at Plugin Planet. USP Pro provides a wealth of template tags and shortcodes to display virtually any submitted content anywhere in your theme.
